SOLD! Handmade Birch Bark Canoe and Papoose
Here is a vintage handmade birch bark canoe with papoose. The canoe is approximately 5 1/4” long.
A papoose (from the Algonquian papoos, meaning "child") is an American English loanword whose present meaning is "a Native American child" (regardless of tribe) or, even more generally, any child, usually used as a term of endearment, often in the context of the child's mother. The word came originally from the Narragansett tribe. In 1643, Roger Williams recorded the word in his A Key Into the Language of America, helping to popularize it.
